    any other good small footprint class D amps like the alpine pdx?

    I have been out of the car audio game for a long while now, but am interested in throwing together a small audio system for my '00 mustang.

    I am looking for a small footprint class D mono amp to drive a single subwoofer, making anywhere between 300-600 wrms @ 2 or 1 ohms.

    Can anyone suggest some good small footprint class D amps similar to the alpine pdx?

    Thanks

    I have a Kicker ZX 400.1 if you're interested. It does 400 watts at 2 ohms. I have it pushing a 12" mtx. Actually sounds good for a small system. It's in great shape and I have the bass knob. You can have the 4 gauge wires, RCAs and inline fuse too. I have photos of it hooked up if you're interested.

    what do you guys think of the JL XD series, specifically the JL XD600.1? how does it compare to say the Alpine PDX 600.1?

    JL amps are nice but seem way overpriced to me, my favorite high end amps but much better pricing is the ARC Audio XDI or KS mini series amps.

    Check out the Incriminator audio IA5.1 it's a tiny version of the IA20.1, rated @ 450wrms @ 1ohm, clamped @ 1.98 ohm = 567wrms

    American Bass! LOL. I have a Phantom 4000MD that does 2000rms but they make smaller versions at a very good price

    This is the smallest one if you were looking to up the rms a tad bit

    American Bass - PH-1600 MD

    It does 800rms @ 1ohm
